Summary

1140. Oliver Pascal chances upon a village raided by mercenaries and rescues the survivors: an orphaned boy, who is the illegitimate son of the old king, and a young widow named Catrin. 

After escorting them to Bristol Castle, they are accepted into the household of Robert of Gloucester, and while Catrin finds herself falling in love with Oliver she becomes bored with the frivolity of court life. 

Thus when the old midwife Etheldreda offers to teach her the secrets of her ancient art, Catrin agrees. But the midwife's life is fraught with dangers - in the shape of two men, both killers and both of whom threaten the couple's lives....

Superb. I enjoyed both the story and the narration

The history of the time was made real through the telling of the story. I thought the narrator's 'voices' brought the characters to life. Very much enjoyed this audio book.
